Pupil Premium and Recovery Premium


Green Example Button

The pupil premium grant is funding to improve educational outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in state-funded schools in England.

All schools that receive pupil premium funding must publish a pupil premium strategy statement for each year.

The following groups are eligible for pupil premium:

  • pupils who are recorded as eligible for free school meals, or have been recorded as eligible in the past 6 years, including eligible children of families who have no recourse to public funds (NRPF)
  • children looked after by local authorities, referred to as looked-after children
  • children previously looked after by a local authority or other state care, referred to as previously looked-after children.

Service pupil premium is additional funding for schools with pupils who have parents serving in the armed forces.  This funding is primarily to enable schools to offer pastoral support and help mitigate the negative impact of family mobility or parental deployment. It can also be used to help improve the academic progress of eligible pupils if a school deems this to be a priority.
